Video: Driving the Audi Lunar Quattro

Jonny Smith of the Fully Charged Show on line program visited the Part Time Scientists group in Berlin, which is partnering with Audi and Vodafone on a private mission to the Moon. In this video, Smith gets to drive the Audi Lunar Quattro, “a remote controlled solar powered electric moon buggy”.

PT Scientists began as a team competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE, which ended without any winners, However, like several other GLXP teams, a commercial company emerged from the effort and will continue to pursue lunar ventures.

“Equipped with a four-wheel electrical drive chain, tilt-able solar panels, rechargeable batteries and science-grade high definition cameras, the Audi lunar quattro rovers will deploy and operate a series of scientific and technological payloads on the Moon.”
